  • Patent number: 10588532
    Abstract: A system can include a near-field instrument to be placed inside a chamber of a heart, a far-field instrument to be placed in a stable position in relation to the heart, and a control unit. The control unit is configured to identify a unique pattern in electrogram information received from the far-field instrument when the near-field instrument is in one or more positions within the heart. When the unique pattern is detected, the control unit is configured to receive electrogram information from the near-field instrument. While recording electrogram information from the near-field instrument, the control unit is also configured to record voltage and complex fractionated atrial electrogram (CFAE) characteristics of the tissue inside a heart chamber. This information combined with rotor information can be used to identify substrate versus non-substrate rotor characteristics.

  • Publication number: 20200062384
    Abstract: An aircraft is operable to transition between thrust-borne lift in a VTOL orientation and wing-borne lift in a biplane orientation. The aircraft includes an airframe having first and second wings with first and second pylons extending therebetween forming a central region. A two-dimensional distributed thrust array and a flight control system are coupled to the airframe. A nose cone and an afterbody are each selectively coupled to the airframe. In a cargo delivery flight configuration, the nose cone and the afterbody are coupled to the airframe such that the nose cone and the afterbody each extend between the first and second wings and between first and second pylons to form a cargo enclosure with an aerodynamic outer shape. In a minimal drag flight configuration, the nose cone and the afterbody are not coupled to the airframe such that air passes through the central region during flight.

  • Patent number: 10574568
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to providing enhanced quality of service (“QoS”) in a software-defined network (“SDN”)-based connectionless mobility architecture. According to one aspect of the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, an SDN controller can receive service level requirements and can map the service level requirements to QoS requirements and attributes to be associated with a QoS tag. The SDN controller can configure a service entry point to insert the QoS tag into incoming packets so that one or more other service points can extract the QoS tag. The other service point(s) can determine, based upon the QoS tag, a QoS treatment to apply to the incoming packets. The other service point(s) can apply the QoS treatment to the incoming packets in accordance with the QoS tag.

  • Patent number: 10559251
    Abstract: Circuits, methods, and apparatus that may estimate the power being consumed by an OLED display screen of an electronic device, may provide further information about that power usage, may modify or change functions performed by the electronic device based on that power usage, and may inform an application's developer about the amount of power being used by the electronic device while the electronic device is running the application. One example may estimate the power being used by an OLED display screen of an electronic device by determining the content of images being displayed during a duration. The estimated power may then be presented to a user. The estimated power may be used in decisions to modify or change parameters of the screen or other device components.
